NEW QUIET RIOT ALBUM TO INCLUDE TONY FRANKLIN AND GLENN HUGHES:

March 6, 2006

I am happy to report that I have completed the drum and percussion tracks for the new QUIET RIOT studio CD. Next we will commence recording the rhythm and lead guitars courtesy of Neil Citron. Neil, who is one of my closets friends and a truly amazing guitarist, has been playing some really wonderful parts for the new QUIET RIOT songs which are the most varied we have written to date. The guitars will be followed by the bass tracks. I am thrilled to report that another very dear friend Tony Franklin will be playing bass on the new CD. I have had the opportunity to work with some wonderful bass players in my career, but none better than Tony. He is the bass players “bass player” and a pleasure to play with. Very soon we will be ready for Mr. Kevin DuBrow to record the vocals.

Kevin has come up with some truly inspiring vocals on this one, and as a bonus we will have Glenn Hughes on a vocal duet with Kevin on a special song with Glenn also contributing his unique bass playing to that one track as well. This will be the first track since the 1982 “Hughes/Thrall” release that Glenn and I are the recorded rhythm section. I hope that those who are fans of QUIET RIOT will be both pleased and surprised with the new CD. Everyone else, like it or not can make up their own minds. At the moment, it’s all good with QUIET RIOT!

Best,
Frankie Banali
